That does seem weird. I would think, at those levels, that more serves on the as side would go to the FH (where more players are comfortable). Perhaps players are not at ease with the ad side because that is where most games are decided (i.e. the last point is played). It is probably perceived as the "pressure" side since so many "game points" happen there.
